Who doesn’t love Poppies?


This is my second post for today, please scroll down for
Paper Pretties Birthday blog hop.

I’m back with another sneak peek from Paper and Such! This time it’s a flower set called Poppies.

I love this set but went a different route with it as I decided to spotlight it. I used spellbinders square to spotlight the different parts of the image and embossed the saying in black. Distressed the design paper and put the image layer on dimensions. Used black Sparkly Fluff in the middles of the poppies that I spotlighted.


Let me tell you, these girls on this team made some awesome cards with this set, so don’t forget to check out their blogs to leave them some love too.
